I'm counting 26 songs, Roy Buchanan, Levon Helm opening. It's amazing how many are no longer with us: Jerry, Brent, Levon, Roy Buchanan and Keith Godchaux passed away 2 weeks prior to the show. Looks like Rain and dear Bones letter :(

I tried to hang on to a gal with:

I only want to hold you,
I don't want to tie you down
Or fit you in the lines i might've drawn

It didn't work (Alyce) saw right through it

A friend & I were so close to the speakers right side as u faced stage for the China rider that it felt like it was controlling our breathing :shock:

As boxorain described it, it is still to this day 1 of the most amazing shows & yes experiences of my just turned 19 year old life at that point :idea:
I LOVE THIS :listen :rockon

Amazing memories, thanks for sharing. I was doing my thing at southern Illinois University for $800 a semester in state tuition lol.

Those were the Better days? Maybe. Probably.
